Taste of Knowledge: 7 June 2013

The Maastricht University School of Business and Economics (SBE) strives to build learning environments in which participants are challenged to further develop their ability to reflect on work experience and to translate these reflections into action.

In order to give professionals and organizations a chance to get a taste of what the school has to offer, SBE organizes “Taste of Knowledge” events twice a year.

14.10 – 14.30 Introduction and opening
14.30 – 17.30 Seminars
17.30 Conclusion of the programme with informal reception

The themes of this 7th edition are:

1. IT Governance & Assurance Leveraging COBIT 5
By Associate Professor Steven de Haes

Information Technology (IT) has become pervasive in current dynamic and often turbulent business environments. An increasingly educated and assertive set of stakeholders is concerned about the sound assurance and governance of IT, focusing at how business benefits can be realized out of IT-enabled innovation and how IT related business risks are managed.

This seminar defines the concepts of IT governance and assurance and explains how the internationally accepted framework COBIT 5 can be leveraged to execute IT governance and assurance assignments in practice.
